Show synopsis To make the vision clearer, and the way plainer for all who are seeking the true path - is the purpose of this volume. The editor has sought through means of allegory, sermon, essay, and lighter narrative - to lead the earnest thinker into a just appreciation of social and moral duties - for no man can walk safely through this world, who, through neglect of these, lives in cold indifference to his neighbor's good. The true path is the path of self-denial; yet none enter this path who do not, sooner or later, find that the way is smoother than was expected, and that instead of leading through a desert land, it winds pleasantly amid flowers and greenness.
